The Peterborough Phantoms went down to the Swindon Wildcats in Saturday night Autumn Cup action.
Luc Johnson put the Phantoms ahead against his former club. His hard work paid off as he went hard to the net and applied the finishing touch to a Nathan Pollard assist.
Tomasz Malasinski equalised for the home side with 11:11 played with a blast from close range after good work from Cats’ player coach, Aaron Nell.
And their second came with just over half of the game played, Balint Pakozdi the recipient of another Nell assist after the Phantoms got caught mid-change and the Cats broke 4 on 1.
Former Phantom Eddie Bebris made it 3-1 just over a minute later with a blue line blast, before Nell grabbed a goal of his own to seal a difficult few minutes for the Phantoms.
Malasinski collected his second of the night with a goal almost identical to his first to make it 5-1, before Jordan Marr added several more saves to his list to stop the scoreline increasing further.
Ales Padelek pulled one back late on for the Phantoms, by finding space in the offensive zone before ripping his shot past Renny Marr.
Phantoms have the chance to go again on Sunday night as the Telford Tigers visit Planet Ice Peterborough. Tickets are available HERE! Doors open at 4:30pm ahead of a 5:30pm face off.
